View Full Version : Redfish Mayhem!

Well sometimes you head out with one idea and end up doing something different. This past Fri I was taking Jason from Arkansas kayak fishing and the plan was to troll for kings and then bottom bump for snapper & grouper. As soon as we got out to our fishing grounds we saw birds diving and fish busting the surface, as we got closer we saw redfish everywhere! There were spanish mixed in and sharks jumping out of the water, it was quite a sight! Jason hooked up right away and the action stayed hot all morning. He did really well and handled the fish and being in a kayak like a pro, I still cant believe he'd never been in a kayak. Here is a little video I put together, be sure and watch about 1 min into it when I get some underwater shots of all the reds...

Amazing! Great video. What camera do you use to be able to put it in the water like that? Wish I had been there.

Love the underwater video. I have seen them black out the machine like that, and seen them gobble up everytihng in sight, but I've never seen them on film or in person under the water. Interesting. I always figured they were balled up even tighter than what was pictured.

Thank you for the report and that video was very cool,
I would like to know what kinda camera also?

That is an Olympus Stylus tough 3000. I have used & abused that camera, it really takes great underwater video, to just be a point & shoot camera.
